I think it has nothing to do with size, if my documents were 1MB and I
made a 750KB view structure, everything is fine, so "small" here
really means, smaller then the first document you scan... from my
testing anyways.

I think this isn't a option as the same view is called without a
reduce to efficiently fetch the docs. Also when I do reduce, I need
every key. I am sure I could redesign but we now have thousands of
customers with these views and a lot of lines of application code that
would need changed, at this point.. it's not reasonable.

Kind Regards,
